Dear Little Belle, Happy Birthday in Heaven. Happy Birthday to you also Irene. I realize that this wasn’t the birthday you hoped for, however I hope you celebrate the wonderful life you gave to Little Belle, all the love and care. Little Belle, there are really no words to decribe all you and Irene have given us. We got to come along with you and your family on this magical journey. You both have taught us what love looks like. Hearts hold the love and true beauty of everyone and every animal. You taught us how to stay strong, and live every moment of life . Irene you have showed us how one person can change the life of so many helpless dogs, and how important it is. The love you gave and received from Little Belle has touched people all over the world. I hope you will continue to share your life and dogs with all of us for a very long time. We will never forget you Little Belle, you beautiful little soul. You will be missed. I believe your words “We have to cherish each and every moment that we share together, feel the love we have for each other and express your love and happiness.These are the treasures of life” are so true. Your love and care for unwanted dogs, giving them a life full of love, is the best tribute to you Little Belle there could ever be. Your picture here says everything and is my favorite. It says it all.One little dog and her very special mom have touched the lives of so many around the world and will never be forgotten. Carol Tesch Wisconsin, U.S.A.
